Facebook confirms site glitches

Some users are having trouble logging on and posting content

Facebook confirmed Monday what some users have been noticing for the past few days: Its site is having problems.

The issues have included disappearing content, difficulties logging on, being unable to view profiles, and error messages when posting content.

"We are working to resolve these issues as soon as possible," Facebook said in a brief message at its Help Center.

The problems resulted from internal issues rather than a hacking incident like the one that affected Twitter, Facebook and some other sites early last month.

"We started experiencing issues this morning because of database and caching problems. We have a team of engineers working to restore the fast and reliable experience users have come to expect from Facebook," the company said in a statement sent via e-mail.

Last week Facebook said its membership had passed 300 million, and that the company became cash-flow positive during the last quarter, something it hadn't expected to achieve until next year.

As its user base continues to grow, Facebook faces "fun and important challenges" like making its site perform faster and more efficiently, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a blog post.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
